across berlin artie's peter oliver has more than on this latest spy exposure. it's a case of another day another case of allies spying on each other this time it's the turn of the british it seems these allegations in documents leaked by edward snowden suggest that on the roof of the british embassy here in berlin there was a on the roof listening post now if that's the case it comes just a week after the united states have supposedly removed a listening post of their own on the roof of their embassy which is just next door to the british embassy here in the german capital now there is the argument that this is what they do however there is certainly going to be repercussions from this if it turns out that it is true that the british had this. this this what it would be called an intercept nest on the roof of their embassy it's certainly going to be toxic for relations between germany and britain to close allies within europe and
3:06 pm
it also comes at a time where german cry and get some kind of agreement on not spying on each other so all of this information coming out it seems in a relentless fashion showing that all of these people who held hands as friends around the world wall secretly listening in to what each other were doing now it's been said that the e.u. have asked david cameron's british government for for answers on this the british government have said well it's a matter of security and they don't comment on matters of security it all seems like a very easy and city gave put this to be repercussions from this and it does seem that just because you're a little paranoid doesn't mean that everybody isn't spying on. it all of it willy germany some of the you can bluster over the eavesdropping allegations of a jim steinberg from the german pirate party told me the government actually knew its allies were listening in. the german government of course did notice what was
3:07 pm
happening on the roof top of the u.s. embassy and the u.k. embassy because it's clear for everybody who looks at that building what's going on there but i think that the german interior secret service they are not allowed to investigate on the l a's and this is simply because germany right now is a subclass partner of the b. of the us and they want to become a first class partner so our government is simply selling our privacy and their own privacy to climb up the ladder money troubles job losses pushing europeans to the far right that's what the latest opinion poll showed months ahead of e.u. parliamentary elections mainstream politicians and analysts say it's too early to predict just how many seats the euro skeptic and nationalist parties could win in may twenty fourteen but let's take a look at made broad estimates suggest. new parties could score from twenty to thirty percent of the vote this year we must get in austria the far right secured

a moment i want to. pick up something that is quite simply. was no way oh. clearly they were just at the wrong place at the wrong time. and sold to us so turned over to the u.s. for. the soul that could be buried alive. was saved with great effort. and they wanted to turn me into a terrorist so it was with them they wanted me to admit that i was a member of al qaeda or taliban or that i fought with them. about time i didn't even know what al qaeda is nevertheless there are people all. brave enough to start a fight. something's going to be done that's going to be done by me i have a short amount of time to do it but it's going to impact me i'd be prosecuted but
3:14 pm
it's going to impact. the wife my daughter. the one time a trap. on our teeth. the olympic torch is on its epic journey to such. a one hundred twenty three days. through two thousand nine hundred ton two cities of russia. relayed by fourteen thousand people or sixty five thousand kilometers. in a record setting trip by land. another space. olympic torch relay. alone again diplomats are struggling to pave the way to that peace conference on syria u.n. arab league envoy lakhdar brahimi says the still no fixed date for the summit we
3:15 pm
were hoping that we would be in a position to announce a date today unfortunately we have not well as i for said plan the summit simply found that russia's foreign ministry says the u.s. lacks enough influence to consolidate the syrian opposition and bring it to the negotiating table but also on to the u.s. refusing to invite a run to the summit which should be a crucial participant according to moscow now we had an exclusive opportunity to ask the advisor to president assad talk to siobhan about what's hindering the start of these talks and she sees it. rather good also on the ground however if you are the coalition many a nationalist opposition however if you are the coalition so good that tell us who do this people if the. us congress that's not the step down i think i would call on secretary kerry to speak the same language everywhere are not the changes narrative according to the capital in which he speaks he speaks one thing in cairo something
3:16 pm
that is or that if there are some didn't they're going to vote on something that's a good level i think the simplest thing is that if secretary of the united states should our not his words and speak the same language everywhere and make this sense down. this as the leading western backed opposition groups refused to attend peace talks in geneva unless president assad steps down however both russia and the u.s. do agree that the conference should be held to at any preconditions assad's advisor also says seriously in full support of that approach. the third and government has announced none it dimes that it is that i did that bender never without precondition the problem is with the others host speak many different languages that different places and hokey but didn't conditions we've just learned that that russians and their americans are about to be that your neighbor too should be convened without any preconditions for money aside so that's fine with us
3:17 pm
where you can check out what else to turn to have to say she is the. advisor to the president on our you tube channel teach you to channel is going to play clicks tonight while you take a look if you fancy. russia's or do you want to look into reports that stockpiles of nuclear material in libya are unsecured a warehouse full of yellowcake uranium which could be used to make atomic weapons was found two years ago but the alarm was only sounded after british newspaper revealed al qaeda become interested in the stockpiles as would have used to threaten gordon it's a former commander of the british military chemical defense regiment he says terrorists could find many dangerous ways to use it. it is not highly radioactive itself however we did see a uranium ore i.e.d. in india some six months ago and it did get a hold of this yellowcake. it is potentially could be used in the
3:18 pm
a radiological explosive device or just used to terrify people it's not very toxic but it is radioactive and that would create a tremendous amount of terror if al qaeda got it everybody is is is terrified of radiation and we hear the horror stories for a place like for. where accidents to occur and yellowcake is radioactive it appears to be held in an unsecured store and although it wouldn't present a a health risk for very short periods but long exposure to it and certainly if yellowcake is ingested and you radium miners to suffer from a high degree of cancer from ingesting powders similar to yellowcake so certainly you are not at all surprised they're concerned about it and not happy to have it in their community unguarded. time eastern libya has sworn in a breakaway government dealing a new blow them to the embattled central authority in tripoli named sarah nika by

local militias there is home to a large share of the country's all reserves that's the key it's also the birthplace to the revolution that incidentally overthrew mom gadhafi in the first place the rebels led by a powerful libyan warlord blocked oil flows in the province this summer that led to a fifty percent drop in exports for his part prime minister elisa down says he won't order a military campaign to oust the armed forces from most all terminals because there's no force in tripoli that could take on such a risk the government's been losing popularity over its failure to deal with corruption and rising instability since the fall of gadhafi some analysts think the split comes with foreign help the central government in tripoli has no control over the country at large and the militias have sidelined tribal leaders and taken over power and this this was the intendant consequence from the beginning the nato or intention was never to do niger libya it was all is the intention
